The latest information on the estimated number of income taxpayers and their mean and median total income by constituency, is shown in table 3.15 Total Income by Parliamentary Constituency" on the HM Revenue and Customs internet website http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/stats/income_distribution/table-3–15.xls.

The income tax information is based upon the 2002–03 Survey of Personal Incomes (SPI).

A breakdown of income taxpayers by tax bands is not available because the sample sizes for marginal rates at constituency level are very small and demonstrate a large variability year on year.
